(Right Country) – The cat is officially out of the bag–that is, the real reason Democrat counties don’t want to open their schools.
This week, Los Angeles County Public Health Director Dr. Barbara Ferrer was caught on tape saying that her county, the largest in the country, by the way, would not be reopening its schools until “after the election.”
What that has to do with anything at all, no one knows. Unless, of course, it has everything to do with politics and nothing to do with the health and well-being of Los Angeles County school children.
“We don’t realistically anticipate that we would be moving to either tier 2 or to reopening K-12 schools at least until after the election, in early November,” Ferrer can be heard saying in a conference call with school administrators and medical staff in a recording that was provided to KFI’s “John and Ken Show.”
Why was this the barometer for when schools would be safe again? This isn’t a major holiday or benchmark in the school year.
The only significance Election Day has is political.
It has long been speculated that Democrat leaders are using school closures to perpetuate the impression that the COVID crisis is ongoing to hurt Donald Trump politically, a theory that was just given wings by Ferrer.
“What does it have to do with the elections?” one of the show’s hosts asked.
“That makes no sense, she just picked a date, the elections,” they added.
The explanation from the county health department is that her reference to the election is an expected point in time to give context to how reopening plans are proceeding.
Who honestly believes this?
“Dr. Ferrer’s comment was related only to timing any expanded school re-openings to allow for enough time from the implementation of changes to assess impact prior to expansions,” a county Department of Public Health spokesperson told Fox News in a statement.
Give me a break!
“When we look at the timing of everything, it seems to us a more realistic approach to this would be to think that we’re going to be where we are now until we are done with the election,” Ferrer said.
